The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse – Series Introduction
If you had to describe the classic children’s books of yesteryear in one word, what word would you choose?
When I asked my husband that question earlier today, he picked the same adjective to describe his favorite children’s books as I did mine: charm.
It’s rare that I come across a modern day children’s book that takes me back to my childhood and reminds me of all of the things that made me fall in love with the magical world of books and reading when I was a child – so it’s with great pleasure that I introduce you to not one, but two books that are destined to become classics in the wonderful world of children’s literature!
Are you ready to delve into a wonderful new series by Gwyneth Jane Page called The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse?
The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Canada – Book Review
When you were a young child, did you ever have a special stuffed animal that you could talk to and share your secrets with – one that could listen to you and converse right back?
Emily does. His name is PJ Mouse!
Emily and PJ were destined to meet. You see, PJ Mouse was lost and alone until Emily heard his cries for help and rescued him from a puddle.
Now, they’re inseparable! They’re the best of friends. And, they’re about to travel the world together and partake in a series of exciting adventures!
In The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Canada, PJ learns all about the world as he and Emily travel to some pretty amazing places like Niagara Falls and Quebec City, a glacier in the Rockies, and the ocean floor in Nova Scotia.
Of course, few things are as unforgettable as a mouse’s first encounter with a cat!
Megan Elizabeth’s lovely illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to this story.
I found myself drawn into this story from the start and I could not wait to read Book 2!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Queensland – Book Review
In The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Queensland, Emily and her family are about to go “down under” – and PJ Mouse, her adorable stuffed mouse, is ready to join her on a new adventure!
The excitement begins when PJ boards the big plane with his very own suitcase and passport, sharing with Emily why he believes he will be “a different mouse” when he lands.
Of course, he’s right – travel changes us – and PJ’s world is stretched to new limits as he learns to boogie board, snorkels the Great Barrier Reef, chats with a Loggerhead turtle in the midst of a great undertaking, and explores the tropical rainforest!
What is wonderful about The Travel Adventures Of PJ Mouse In Queensland is that as your child enters the wonderful world of PJ Mouse and Emily and accompanies them on their journey, they will learn how to face the unknown and learn lots about themselves and the world around them in the process!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
